Postdoctoral Research Associate, Research Institute of Infection, Immunity & Inflammation, University of Glasgow, Scotland

Post 1: Plasmacytoid Dendritic Cells in Atherosclerosis
Ref: 010461
Salary: Grade 7: £33,242 – £37,394 per annum
Reporting to: Dr Pasquale Maffia
Contact: Pasquale.Maffia@glasgow.ac.uk
Closing date: 28.06.15

We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral research associate to make a leading contribution to a BHF funded grant “Defining innate and adaptive immune functions of plasmacytoid dendritic cells in atherosclerosis”. The project will be supervised by Dr Pasquale Maffia, Prof Paul Garside and Prof James Brewer. The post holder will join a motivated multidisciplinary team of researchers embedded in the Institute of Infection, Immunity and Inflammation and will also work in close proximity with Prof Ziad Mallat (University of Cambridge). Specifically, the job requires experience in cellular immunology.

Plasmacytoid dendritic cells (pDCs) represent a unique subset of dendritic cells, which play distinct and critical roles in the immune response. Importantly, pDCs play a pivotal role in several chronic autoimmune diseases strongly characterized by an increased risk of vascular pathology. Clinical studies have shown that pDCs were detectable in atherosclerotic plaques and others suggested an association between reduced numbers of circulating pDCs and cardiovascular events. We have recently demonstrated that MHC Class II-restricted antigen presentation by plasmacytoid dendritic cells drives proatherogenic T cell immunity. The post holder will use original selective approaches and recently developed genetic mouse models to precisely address the impact of pDCs in innate versus adaptive atherosclerotic immune responses.

The successful candidate will also be expected to conduct, manage and publish research in the area of cardiovascular immunology as well as assist in managing and directing this complex and challenging project.

This post is full time and funded until 31/3/17.

Post 2: Development of Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering in Treatment of Atherosclerosis
Ref: 010466
Salary: Grade 7: £33,242 – £37,394 per annum
Reporting to: Dr Pasquale Maffia
Contact: Pasquale.Maffia@glasgow.ac.uk
Closing date: 28.06.15

We are seeking a highly-motivated postdoctoral research associate to make a leading contribution to an EPSRC funded project on investigating the development of Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS) and use metallic nanoparticles for improving the diagnosis, understanding and treatment of atherosclerosis. The project will be supervised by Dr Pasquale Maffia and Prof Paul Garside. The post holder will join a motivated multidisciplinary team of researchers embedded in the Institute of Infection, Immunity and Inflammation and will also work in close proximity with Prof Duncan Graham (University of Strathclyde). Specifically, the job requires experience in cellular immunology and in vivo models of inflammation.

The development of innovative approaches for the molecular imaging of inflammation in atherosclerosis would be key to improve diagnosis and treatment. Surface Enhancement Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) is developing as an effective molecular imaging optical modality in biomedicine because it offers many advantages over traditional technologies, including better sensitivity, and a superior multiplexing capability. Therefore, the primary aim of the present proposal is to develop innovative, highly-sensitive and selective SERS-based system to measure inflammation in atherosclerotic vessels. The post holder will use nanoparticles (NPs), small metallic particles, which possess the ability to recognise immune markers, as imaging probes. When a light source is shone on these NPs, they can be detected by SERS. The secondary aim is to customise the NPs to enable local treatment of the pathology. The proposed approaches will offer new ways to manage atherosclerosis.

The successful candidate will also be expected to conduct, manage and publish research in the area of molecular imaging of vascular inflammation as well as assist in managing and directing this complex and challenging project

This post is full time and funded until 30/4/18.
